True friends are like gems...

I found true friends with these people whom I'm with for more than 20 years, yes 20 years. We're a group of 10, 6 guys and 4 girls, but most of them are settled in foreign countries. Even though some got their own families and priorities have change, still we can say that friendship is still intact. When we set reunion, they are still there to join. What's best is when someone feels odd or let say problematic, everyone feels it without even saying a word. Though we have individual differences, we love each other and still want to keep our friendship come what may. How you could not value these people? We could say that we are the extension of our families. We are really like gems worth to keep.

You are very lucky that you have friends who stayed with you for 20 years. I'm not that lucky. Number of friends trickled down to a very few when I encountered EXTREME financial difficulty. Still, I'm happy with those who remain to be at my side. I made a mental note that I will reward them once all the nightmares are behind me. I look forward to that.

This is really nice. I am glad that you have friends like this. I have one really good girlfriend. She and I can talk about anything. I am so glad to have her. My sister would be my best friend as well. We can talk about anything and laugh and cry together.
